Blue East completed his unbeaten run through the Tilemaster Kingdom Derby at Tralee as he ran out a smart winner in the Final.

Breaking well from traps he was in full control of the contest early on as he led into the opening bends. Extending his lead along the far side he continued to push on for victory. Turning for home he cruised to a two length victory in a quick 28.46.

It’s been a good year for Blue East, and his owner Larry O’Rourke, who adds the Tilemaster Kingdom Derby title to the Gain Select Stakes he won at Waterford earlier in this campaign.
